If you find your vehicle bouncing, bottoming out, diving when braking, or just not tracking true whatever direction you’re steering, it’s time to visit Uptown Auto Specialist in New Orleans and Jefferson Parish to see whether shock and strut replacement or more serious auto repair is needed. For more than 30 years, the auto mechanics at Uptown Auto Specialist have provided New Orleans Parish motorists with a full range of maintenance services and auto repairs, including shock and strut replacement. We also have a complete body shop onsite.

All of our auto mechanics at Uptown Auto Specialist in Jefferson are professionally certified, highly trained to keep pace with ever-advancing suspension technology and associated service procedures, and properly tooled to perform shock and strut service and/or replacement correctly. We want you to receive expert auto repair with exceptional customer service — without compromise — that you and your vehicle deserve. Whether you need shock and strut replacement or some other auto repair, we can handle your vehicle’s repairs.

Modern auto repair requires a constant education to keep up with new technology and ever-evolving associated service procedures, according to owner Paul Cosma. That’s why Uptown Auto Specialist invests in annual automaker training, direct-from-the-manufacturer service information and keeping diagnostic skills current. These resources are essential to safe and complete auto repair today, so we partially offset these investments by charging a prorated fee for the vehicles we service each year. It’s how we service and repair your vehicles without compromise. Other competitors may choose not to keep their knowledge, skills, information resources, or equipment current so they can charge less, but we won’t shortchange your vehicle chassis’ health, longevity or performance. That goes for shock and strut replacement as well as any other repairs.

In addition, given New Orleans’ predisposition to heavy hurricane rains and annual Mississippi River high water levels, Uptown Auto Specialist offers two services unique to the NOLA climate: (1) pre-purchase inspections, so customers know a used car is in good condition before they buy it; and (2) complete restoration of freshwater flood-damaged vehicles, but don’t remedy salt water flooded car auto repairs, as they’re irreparable due to corrosion.
